The "choice" argument is interesting. In my neighborhood, most of the
residents are senior citizens on fixed incomes who will never reap a
single benefit from UTOPIA. Yet their city government has obligated
them to make good on at least 20 years of bond payments so I can have
cheap internet service. Yes, I now have a choice between a couple of
ISPs, but what "choice" do my neighbors have when it comes time to pay
the piper for my fiber?

You have a funny way of limiting your definition of "choice". :-)

Why? Because it's just plain wrong to force your neighbors to
subsidize your desire for cheap, fast internet connectivity.

Good one. :-)
